Friday's Horse Racing (24th June)

It's been a while since I last posted, you know how it is when life gets in the way, work, drinking, sports and then lack of motivation hasn't helped but here I am ready to write about a few trackers that have come through.

17.15 Newmarket

Nice race coming up here and eleven go to post in what looks like an open contest with the current favourite Pureness 5/1 for George Boughey and William Buick. I have two trackers in this, first is Royal Dress for Richard Hannon the Night Of Thunder filly played up in the stalls before her debut at Haydock last month and probably blew any chance she had. That was a decent race to be honest so I wouldn't be so quick to write her off. My other tracker is the one I've had a small each way bet on. Karl Burke unleashed a lovely prospect at Royal Ascot last week when Holloway Boy won the Chesham Stakes on debut, I'm pretty sure they thought a lot of this Ulysses colt and wouldn't have been anywhere near Ascot if they didn't like him, anyway Poppy Carrew is the one I've been waiting for after a satisfactory debut at York earlier this month. A 62,000 euro purchase for owners Nick Bradley and E Burke, attracted some late support on debut and went off 13/2, a touch slowly away and outpaced for her first time on the racecourse and nudged along by Clifford Lee for most of the race, Poppy Carrew didn't give up and stayed on the best the final furlong making up ground on the winner Mersea. I'm hoping a bit more clued up at the start today and she can be in the finish. A few potential nice horses here so one race not to go mad on. Around 11/2 now but I've got 13/2, any drift would be negative.

18.25 Newmarket 

I just noticed one tracker I've been waiting a good while for. The Dubawi filly Pure Dignity makes her debut for Roger Varian. Very well regarded last year as a 2yo so I was expecting to see her in a few of the top races this season. Nice pedigree and comes with a hefty price tag, a cool 2,500,000 euros to be precise. A bit of a shame only five runners plus goes against the odds on Appleby filly Light Of Peace, but as Pure Dignity is one of my 3yos to follow I've had a go at 5/2 but around 2s now. 

A few tomorrow.

13.55 Chester

Odds on shot Silencer you would imagine to be good enough here but no bet for me.

13.25 Curragh

Should be more to Hermana Estrella's liking now she drops in class. NR

16.03 Newcastle

Clearpoint looks above average for Richard Fahey and has good claims despite a win penalty here. No bet but looking forward to seeing how good he is.

Thanks for reading and good luck.
